What is the benefit of using Hydroponic Soil versus Natural Soil?
After having a few discussions about hydroponic soil versus natural soil with some gardners and landscapers, I was told that usually natural soil provides a better yield in vegetable gardens than hydroponics.
Does anyone have any references to the research behind this statement? I have no idea where I would be able to find supporting claims for that.
Also, I am curious to know if TED has any opinion, or experience, on this. I find that research is crucial, but often hard to find. So, hearing first-hand experience would be very helpful
